Stop smoking with hypnosis - how to beat your nicotine addiction.

The problem with quitting smoking is that there are two sides to a nicotine addiction. On the one hand, there is the physical dependence, which many smokers are most afraid of but is, in fact, relatively easy to overcome.

On the other hand, there is the psychological dependence, which is much more difficult to tackle. This psychological dependence is based on years of habit and the erroneous assumption that smoking actually benefits the smoker in some way. For years, people have convinced themselves that they need cigarettes to relax, to slow down, to cope with stress, or simply to digest after a meal. And this is all due to a psychological belief, not, as some may think, a physical dependence.

As a smoker, deep down you know that you don’t need to smoke after every meal, but single-handedly beating this psychological addiction is extremely difficult.

To stop smoking forever, it is advisable to seek professional help, such as hypnosis, which can help you identify your own reasons for smoking and overcome them. With hypnosis, you can delve deeper into your subconscious to break down trained associations (smoking when stressed) and automated behaviours (reaching for a cigarette after every meal).

Overcoming these kinds of beliefs and behaviours is achievable with hypnosis because it involves both the conscious and subconscious minds. On the level of the conscious mind, we will work together to identify your reasons and motivation for your psychological addiction. Then, we dissolve these triggers by activating the subconscious mind.

Essentially, hypnosis is so effective because the subconscious and conscious minds are working together towards a common goal – helping you quit smoking for good!

The best part is that as an ex-smoker who has quit via hypnosis, you won’t even feel like you’re missing anything! Unlike many people who quit on their own, you won’t experience cravings or withdrawals every time you see someone else smoking.

Why should I use hypnosis to quit smoking? Will it stand up to severe temptations and cravings?

Quitting smoking is a bit like going on a diet. Losing weight itself isn't that hard, the challenge is to maintain a healthy weight. This philosophy is the same with quitting smoking: the difficulty isn’t stopping for a time… it’s never starting again.

As the saying goes: life is not an easy journey. We are bound to encounter stressful and difficult situations in life that may make it difficult to quit smoking for good – especially if you’ve become accustomed to reaching for a cigarette in stressful situations or times when you feel overwhelmed.

A good hypnotist will expose these underlying causes of your nicotine addiction and address the four main pillars on which your nicotine addiction is based. For example, in addition to physical and emotional dependence, some people unconsciously use cigarettes as appetite suppressants or as an excuse to take a break. For long-time smokers, in particular, smoking has become subconsciously linked to their personality: "I am a smoker".

During your hypnotherapy, then, a good hypnotist will place special emphasis on dissolving your unconscious motives for smoking and replacing them with new wonderful, life-changing programmes and content.

This results in the following:

  1. The link between stress and smoking will be dissolved
  2. You will be taught reliable techniques for relaxation to cope better with excessive demands and stress
  3. You will learn to deal with difficult situations without smoking so that there is less chance of relapse.

At my coaching and hypnosis practice in Berlin, we rely on a multi-layered program to help you quit smoking, using a combination of techniques such as acupressure and coaching. Thus, we provide a holistic solution to your smoking addiction, which helps you with personal development and leads to more self-control in life in general.

Using hypnosis to quit smoking permanently is, therefore, very easy and pain-free - effective even when every other method you’ve tried has failed.

What are the chances I’ll never smoke again after hypnosis?

Hypnosis is one of the easiest and fastest methods to bring about permanent behavioural change. That is what makes hypnosis so effective as a cure for a nicotine addiction.

In a recent survey, more than two-thirds of all smokers said that they would like to quit smoking, but very few ever do. This is because the path to becoming a non-smoker single-handedly through sheer willpower is extremely hard. You must be strong-willed and motivated to be able to quit for good. To become a non-smoker via other methods, you must go through several stages, and if you try to skip any of them, you will fail to quit forever.

However, every person is different, and therefore, every smoker will react slightly differently. It is certainly wrong to equate the twenty-five-year-old occasional smoker with the sixty-year-old chain smoker who has been smoking two packs a day for forty years.

Nevertheless, I find the most crucial requirement for successful hypnosis is that the patient whole-heartedly wants to quit. Hypnosis cannot perform miracles. If you are not mentally ready to quit smoking, no hypnotist in the world can help you become a non-smoker.

But, if you’re ready to quit smoking for good, without the pain and struggle of other methods, hypnosis is quick, easy, and effective – with patients quitting for good after a single session!

To find out if hypnosis is right for you, we offer a free consultation before agreeing to help you. In this consultation, we will practice a test hypnosis to find out whether you are ready to become a non-smoker and identify a tailored approach to help you quit for good.

Please be aware that a good hypnotherapist will tell you upfront if you are not ready. This is in the interest of both parties because in this case, the hypnosis might not work. So, if your hypnotherapist offers you an appointment after the initial consultation, this means they’re confident they’ll be able to help you quit smoking! So you can look forward to being able to live a self-determined life without cigarettes.

I am so convinced of my method that I offer a satisfaction guarantee. If within a year you find yourself smoking again, you can come back to me as often as you need until you are completely free of your desire for cigarettes.

I hope this article can help remove any doubts and fears that might stand in the way of you choosing hypnosis as your method of choice to permanently quit smoking.

Don't wait any longer! Take control of your life and book a free consultation now.
